Best Practices When Applying Attic Insulation

Contents

There are many benefits to having a roofing contractor install proper insulation in your attic. A well-insulated attic can help regulate humidity levels on your roof, preventing moisture damage on the wooden support structures that hold your roof up. It can also improve the energy efficiency of your home by increasing the insulation ability of your roof. Lastly, combined with adequate attic ventilation, the right amount of insulation can prolong the lifespan of your roof.

The performance of your attic insulation is only as good as the quality of its insulation. Let our roofing experts at Bone Dry Roofing give you a few effective tips to maximize the advantages of a properly insulated attic.

Insulation Must Not Block Vents

One of the most common causes of premature roof replacement is inadequate ventilation. The soffits are often lined with enough vents to allow for air circulation in the attic. However, most homeowners make the mistake of placing their insulation material on top of their soffit vents. This cuts off the airflow and could create more problems in your roof.

Keep Away From Lights

Lighting fixtures generate a lot of heat when they are turned on. Insulation materials are often dry, fibrous, and flammable. Mixing the two can be a recipe for disaster. Avoid putting your insulation around or near recessed lights in your attic ceiling to avoid fire hazards. A properly positioned skylight can substitute for electric lighting, but it’s important not to cover them up with insulation as well.

Get a Professional to Install Your Insulation

Spreading out batts of insulation might sound like a simple enough job to DIY. However, you can avoid any further problems and ensure the quality of installation by enlisting the aid of a professional roof repair and maintenance contractor. This way you can make the most out of your insulation and reap its benefits.
